Review #97. Buffalo Trace Mashbill 1 White Dog

Review #97 | /r/Bourbon Review #54 – Buffalo Trace Mashbill 1 White Dog

The Schtick: This is Buffalo Trace’s Mashbill #1 Distillate bottled before aging.


Distiller: Buffalo Trace

Bottler: Buffalo Trace

ABV: 62.5% ABV

Age: Unaged

Source: Bottle, Purchased


Nose: Corn and oh so sweet cream. Malty sweetness.

Taste: It’s hot and rough but very sweet and filled with grain and malt sweetness. It’s a lot like oversweet cornbread and I oddly enjoy it.

Finish: Short and hot. There’s a lot of corn here. Almost sickeningly sweet.

Overall: So this is what some brands of BT bourbon start out as. I think it’s really something and pretty enjoyable before the aging process. It’s also very fascinating to see how a lot of the BT lines I’ve tried and reviewed lately respond to the aging process. It’s oddly enjoyable, very sweet and a great look at what bourbon starts out as. I’d recommend a sip for any person who hasn’t tried some yet, just to see how things change over time.

I”m not rating this because, well, it’s not really right. But it’s a great educational experience to show you how much aging plays into the final product.

Thanks for reading!
